I found a whole stack of vintage wrapping papers at the Fremont Market a couple of weekends ago. I had a hard time cutting it up, but it definitely goes with the fifties theme, if not my fifties theme (which happens to be pink, go figure).
The other gifts are for my girly girls. These are the gifts I think of first, plan for first, and finish first–of all the holiday-ing I do. They’re the most fun to give, and usually what I’m most happy with, partly because they represent me and them (two parties I am also very fond of). I wrote last year about how frustrating it is to have all sorts of crafty posts ready to go, but can’t share for fear of ruining someone’s surprise. These boxes will have to suffice for now.
Oh, and I usually abstain from the kitty posts, but she’s so cute and ferocious, plus it’s a hand-knitted toy from a colleague of mine (insert more convincing craft blog argument worthiness here). Merry Christmas all!
